Singapore Airlines was also one of Flight Centre’s most popular international airlines for 2022.  

Among destinations in Asia, Australians booked heaps of seats to Manila (8th overall), Bangkok (10th) and Phuket (11th).

Flight Centre’s most expensive cruise booking in 2022 cost a whopping A$333,400 (US$225,600).
